3 min


Being in your 20’s can be a hell of a ride. You feel the need to be successful with what you do. You feel all the frustrations and expectations from people who know you. Do you really have to listen to what people say or do things at your own pace?

Viral Strange listed down the 10 pieces of advice for people in their 20’s:

1. Do not pressure yourself too much.

Take all the time you need. You do not have to compare your step one to somebody else’s step twenty. You have to enjoy the ride of your life because you cannot relive anything. You have to keep on believing that you will also make it in time.

2. Don’t expect too much.

You have to do your best, but you have to understand that you can’t have everything. Not everything is about you. There will be times that you will fail. There will be people who will not support your journey, but that is okay. You have to channel your radiant energy to people who see your potential. 

3. Forgive and love more.

It is easier to be giving and forgiving. It is not good for yourself to meddle in negativity and to keep on holding grudges. It feels great to wake up every day, not with a heavy heart. 

4. Stay true to your core.

Always be true to yourself, but do not hurt other people. Respect them as you want to be respected. Always abide by the rules of karma.

 5. Save money.

Since you are not getting younger anymore, it is wise to save up for the future. You have to secure yourself because you might not know when emergencies happen. 

6. Do not be desperate for love

You do not have to pressure yourself at all when it comes to love. If it does not happen, it is totally okay. You have to remember that getting married or having kids is not for everyone. 

7. Get out of the closet.

If you are still hiding the real you, then you have to unleash that. You deserve to live every day without having to hide the real you. You have to spread your wings and be as free as ever!

8. Eat healthily.

You have to understand that you are approaching the 30’s soon. You have to be ready for that stage of your life. You have to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle for your own good. 

9, Travel more.

If you want to explore places, you have to do it now, because you will not have the same energy in your 40’s. You will have the same drive to visit other places. 

10. Do something that is out of your comfort zone.

You have to explore a new hobby. You have to connect with different people. You have to do something different from your usual routines. You have to experiment with new things that will allow you to grow even more.

Living every day is challenging because you have to deal with a lot of struggles. It can be frustrating because you know that you did your best, but still, it wasn’t good enough. But no matter what age you are now, you have to understand that pressure will always be there. It will make you committed to your goals and visions. You have to take it easy when failure happens because that is part of growing and learning.

You have to be teachable. You have to admit that you are not perfect. You do not have to be too harsh on yourself as well. You have to appreciate everything that you have too. Lastly, appreciate all the people who have helped you in your success.
